A new psychological thriller is on the way starring Anna Kendrick, and it had us at “Anna Kendrick,” to be honest. Kendrick is a brilliant actress and we miss seeing her on the big screen. And taking on a psychological thriller? Yes, please! But what is the movie Alice, Darling about?

This isn’t the first time Kendrick tackles this genre. A Simple Favor is another great film that sees the actress show off her skills. And if the trailer is of any indication, Alice, Darling is going to feature Kendrick’s best work yet.

Now, the month of January isn’t necessarily known for its brilliant movies. On the contrary, it’s not a very popular month for great features, but I think Alice, Darling is going to change that.

Alice, Darling made its debut Toronto International Film Festival on September 2022. The movie was later released in limited Los Angeles theaters in late December 2022. And now, it is finally getting a wide premiere in AMC Theaters on Jan. 20, 2023.

What is the movie Alice, Darling about?

Directed by Mary Nighy (her directorial debut) from a screenplay by Alanna Francis, Alice, Darling follows Alice (portrayed by Anna Kendrick), a timid young woman with a psychologically and emotionally abusive boyfriend, Simon (Charlie Carrick).

When Alice is invited on a girls trip, she comes up with a lie in order for Simon to be okay with her going. It’s during this trip that Alice strongly feels the stress and pressure of Simon’s manipulative ways. Will Alice be able to break free with the support of her friends? Or does Simon already have too strong of a hold on Alice? Watch the movie trailer, below.
